Easy Holistic Beauty & Skin Care Recipes That You Can Make at Home! You don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy luxury skin care and natural beauty products. Instead you can make your own DIY holistic skin care & beauty recipes at home! These natural skin care recipes work as well as big natural beauty industry products, but without the steep price tag.

My roommate’s house is heavily wooded in the backyard. As a result, a multitude of strange insects, not to mention bird poop, tend to drop from the trees. So my car is often covered in odd looking spiders with turquoise pedipalps and slimy looking larvae. Don’t even get me started on the tree sperm. (Er, pollen.) There’s simply no escaping it.

Yesterday evening I walked back into the house after taking my dog, Jasper outside. I then retired to my bedroom to watch television with my boyfriend, Greg, after dinner. It didn’t take long to discover a black segmented insect of some sort crawling on me. My immediate reaction was to jump up and down and frantically brush off my body and clothing to rid myself of whatever this bug was.

Greg laughed at me and told me he really enjoyed my dance. But, he stated, “You would never survive in the deep South.” This then led into a less than favorable discussion about palmetto bugs – which are fricking huge flying cockroaches! – and the like. Unknown or simply gross insects are kind of my kryptonite. If they have the ability to spike my anxiety, or even worse, bite and potentially poison me, I want it gone as soon as possible.

The same can be said for toxic skin care products. It wasn’t that long ago that Johnson & Johnson lost a lawsuit claiming that their talc based baby powder caused cervical cancer. It was ruled that there was a link between talc and cancer in a court case involving 63-year-old Eva Echeverria. She later died of cervical cancer on Sept. 20, 2017. This ruling – and the award – was later overturned. However it does raise questions about potentially harmful skin care and beauty products. And whether or not we can trust the companies selling us these products.

As we discover more about the cancer causing and potentially toxic ingredients that the beauty industry has been putting in our beauty and skin care products over the years, it’s no wonder there’s a shift toward holistic skin care. With the average lifespan for women lengthening and the cost of healthcare rising, who can afford to get sick? (The cost for treating cervical cancer can run as much as $82,324 for just the first year of treatment!)

Luckily there’s been a shift in the skin care and cosmetics industry here in the United States towards more natural beauty products. A lot of these natural skin care products tend to be more expensive than their synthetic alternatives however. But you don’t have to pay a high prices tag for your health where beauty and skin care is involved. You can make your own easy holistic beauty & skin care recipes at home.

Natural Antifungal Foot Salve Recipe to Promote Foot Health

This natural antifungal foot salve recipe is a great way to naturally promote skin health. Used daily it can help to treat fungal foot infections as well as prevent their reoccurrence. Keep reading to learn how you can have healthier feet with this simple, all natural homemade salve.

Natural Antifungal Foot Salve Recipe - a natural holistic home remedy for athlete's foot, toenail fungus and candida with key ingredients like an antifungal essential oil, neem oil and coconut oil. This natural antifungal foot salve recipe is a great way to naturally promote skin health. Used daily it can help to treat fungal foot infections as well as prevent their reoccurrence. #antifungal

I love warm weather. Not only am I able to to be more active when the weather is nice, but there are so many more activities I can enjoy outside. It’s also a great time to chuck my tennis shoes for flips flops and sandals – or simply go barefoot at the river or by the pool.

If you're going to be spending time out on the water this summer, then you need to take extra care of your feet. Learn how to make this natural antifungal foot salve recipe to promote foot health and prevent athlete's foot, toenail fungus and even candida!

Just last weekend Greg and I were down by the river (on a very rainy day!) freeing a snapping turtle who’d wandered too far. We found the little guy in the parking garage for Greg’s apartment building not far from a very busy street. As it was dark outside when we found him, we took the turtle in to stay the night with us. We put him in a large bowl with a few water drops and some greens until morning.

Freeing a snapping turtle down by the river that we found in the parking garage.

The next day we ventured off to the boat access off the greenway just across from where Greg lives to let the turtle go. The river was insane that day as we’d had multiple days of rain. So I set the turtle in the grass about five feet back from the river so he wouldn’t get swept away. Seeming pleased, that little guy took a few steps then nestled himself beneath the grass so he could chillax.

If you’re ready to start embarking on your own warm weather adventures, you’re probably going to want to lose your shoes at some point. However, if you have athlete’s foot or toenail fungus, that’s not something you can hide if you aren’t wearing shoes. My natural antifungal foot salve recipe can help alleviate symptoms and prevent the reoccurrence of athlete’s foot, toenail fungus and even candida.

About My Natural Antifungal Foot Salve Recipe

There are many common natural antifungal ingredients that you’ve probably already heard of. These include things such as black walnut hulls, coconut oil, garlic, lavender buds, neem oil, wild oregano oil, turmeric and tea tree oil. These ingredients are found in many of the natural home remedies that are used to treat foot related fungal infections. However, holistic home remedy options for foot or nail fungus don’t have to be complicated – or even contain a lot of ingredients.

The base for my natural antifungal foot salve recipe contains a blend of just three holistic ingredients. Those ingredients are organic cosmetic beeswax, refined coconut oil and neem oil. Both neem oil and coconut oil have strong, proven antifungal properties. Because this salve contains neem oil, however, the addition of organic essential oils will make your natural antifungal foot salve smell a lot better. And these essential oils have their own benefits when used in skin care too.

What is Neem Oil?

Neem oil is a natural carrier oil. It is derived from the pressed fruits and seeds of the neem tree – an evergreen tree that is endemic to India. Due to it’s natural health and skin care benefits, neem oil has a long history of use in both Ayurvedic and Unani medicine.

Both a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic, neem oil also possesses antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. As such, it’s often used topically in natural skin care preparations to fight rheumatism, eczema, ringworm, athlete’s foot, cold sores, psoriasis, warts, chronic syphilitic sores, infected burn wounds, and slow-healing skin ulcers. Additionally, neem oil can also help to control various skin infections including scabies and candida.

AntiFungal Essential Oils

There are many natural essential oils with antifungal properties. In addition to both oregano and tea tree essential oils previously mentioned, many other essential oils naturally deter the growth of fungus. These antifungal essential oils include thyme, clove, lavender, geranium, chamomile, cedarwood, cinnamon bark, frankincense, lemongrass, pine, ravensara and rosemary.

Some of these essential oils can irritate skin, such as clove, cinnamon bark, pine, ravensara, cedarwood and thyme. Therefore use these essential oils with caution for topical applications. However many others are safe to use when properly diluted. You can use up twelve drops of essential oil per ounce. This is normally considered a safe amount for skin care applications such as my natural antifungal foot salve recipe. So feel free to craft your own natural antifungal essential oil blends to suit your nose.

(Pregnant women should avoid certain essential oils. Always consult your health care provider before trying any alternative or holistic therapies. It’s also important to note that the recommended usage rate of essential oils for children is much lower than it is for adults.)

Get started with essential oils with four basic skin care recipes.

And, it does it without drying out your skin. So you aren’t left with flaky, red irritated skin that store bought acne medications with benzoyl peroxide tend to give you.

When not in use, keep your anti-fungal foot salve stored in a cool, dry location. Your foot salve should last up to 12 months when properly stored.

Natural Pain Relief Salve Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

3 oz. arnica infused fractionated coconut oil (or arnica herbal oil)
1 oz. white cosmetic beeswax (or natural beeswax)
48 drops (about 2 mL) ginger or fresh ginger essential oil

Instructions:

Begin by infusing arnica flowers in fractionated coconut oil to create an herbal infused oil. To do this you can use either the solar infused method or the quick heat method to create your arnica infused coconut oil. (You can find a tutorial for both methods at the Mountain Rose Herbs blog here.)

This natural pain relief salve recipe with arnica and ginger essential oil is made with just four simple ingredients to relieve inflammation and ease pain associated with muscle pain, arthritis, sprains, fibromyalgia, bruises and carpal tunnel. Make this natural home remedy in just ten minutes or less!

Once the arnica infused fractionated coconut oil is ready, you can make my natural pain relief salve recipe. To do this, weigh out the arnica infused oil and beeswax using a digital scale. Then combine in a small 1- cup glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Gently heat the oil and beeswax in a double boiler until melted. Once melted, remove from heat.

Now add the ginger essential oil. You can do this by either measuring out 2 mL essential oil with a transfer pipette, or by using a dropper to add the amount of drops called for.

Stir to combine, then evenly pour into three 2 oz. glass jars or metal tins of your choice. (I used  2.3 oz. clear glass thick wall cosmetic jar from SKS Bottle & Packaging. If you double my natural pain relief salve recipe you will be able to fill around five of these jars.)

This natural pain relief salve recipe with arnica and ginger essential oil is made with just four simple ingredients to relieve inflammation and ease pain associated with muscle pain, arthritis, sprains, fibromyalgia, bruises and carpal tunnel. Make this natural home remedy in just ten minutes or less!

Allow the pain salve to cool completely. Then screw on the lids and label as desired for personal use or gifting.

Notes on making ingredient substitutions to my natural pain relief salve recipe.

I chose to use fractionated coconut oil in my natural pain relief salve recipe so it would absorb quickly and not feel greasy. However you’re welcome to use another carrier oil of your choice or simply purchase pre-made arnica herbal oil.

Alternately, you can also use Mountain Rose Herbs Warming Ginger Massage Oil in place of the fractionated coconut oil and omit the ginger essential oil entirely. However you will still need to infuse the arnica in the warming ginger massage oil if you choose to make this substitution.

Additionally, if your skin is easily irritated, I highly recommend using Mountain Rose Herbs fresh ginger essential oil over their  ginger essential oil which is extracted from the dried, rather than a fresh root and doesn’t cause skin irritation.

A caution on the use of arnica.

Due to the nature of arnica and its compounds, never use arnica on broken skin. Best suited for occasional topical use, you should avoid using arnica for extended periods of time. It is important to note as well, that if you are allergic or sensitive to ragweed, daisies, marigolds and other flowers in the Asteraceae or Compositae family, arnica may cause an allergic reaction. Or, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, arnica should simply be avoided all together.

If you are sensitive or allergic to arnica there are a number of other typically non-irritating herbs that can help to reduce pain caused by inflammation. These include St. John’s Wort, green tea, rosemary, sage and turmeric. (You may also be interested in Mountain Rose Herbs Arnica St. John’s Herbal Oil.) Additionally, herbs such as neem leaf, St. John’s Wort, lavender, peppermint, marjoram, chamomile and eucalyptus are all also effective at relieving pain symptoms. You can simply infuse one or more of these organic herbs into your carrier oil in place of the arnica.

This natural pain relief salve recipe with arnica and ginger essential oil is made with just four simple ingredients to relieve inflammation and ease pain associated with muscle pain, arthritis, sprains, fibromyalgia, bruises and carpal tunnel. Make this natural home remedy in just ten minutes or less!

Easy ways to decorate the jars for your pain relief salve.

I used round cactus stickers to decorate the lids of my jars. You can also use washi tape to “seal” the jars closed, running the washi tape across the lid and down the sides of the jar. Then place a round sticker label over the washi tape on top of the lid. Alternately wrapping washi tape around your jars is another easy idea.

Cheery round natural plant stickers! This grab bag of colorful succulent, cactus and plant stickers from Art by Sharell are perfect for decorating your small salve jars and other homemade bath and body products you've created using the beauty, soap and skin care recipes from Soap Deli News blog.

If you’re looking for cute stickers, I’m currently crushing on this collection of succulents stickers from Art by Sharell. Sharell incidentally just happens to live in my hometown of Roanoke, VA. I met her at an indie craft fair last year that raises money for a local non-profit, Girls Rock Roanoke. In addition to her lovely illustrated stickers, Sharell also paints beautiful nature inspired wood wall art.

Plus learn how to customize a simple all purpose salve recipe for your skin specific needs.

Plus learn how to create your own simple, yet affordable all purpose salve that can be  easily customized for your skin specific needs.

Why choose herbal salves over modern skin care treatments?

Having grown up with a variety of frustrating skin issues, including eczema and dry skin, I’ve found that the best herbal salve recipes are also some of the best home remedies one can use. Not only are herbal salves effective at soothing itching and skin irritation, they also promote skin health. So skin not only looks and feels better after use, it can actually repair damage for healthier skin overall.

More importantly, when you make one of these best herbal salve recipes, you don’t have to worry about potentially harmful or synthetic ingredients found in many prescription and commercial over-the-counter products. I believe it’s important to know exactly what you’re putting onto your skin. After all, your skin is the largest organ on your body. So it’s just as important to take care of your skin as it is to say, take care of your eye health.

Best Herbal Salve Recipes for Every Ailment (Plus An Easy Customizable All Purpose Salve Recipe!) Swapping out a homemade herbal infused oil in an herbal salve recipe is a great way to further customize that salve to meet your specific skin care needs and to promote skin health.

By learning about the benefits that each ingredient in this collection of best herbal salve recipes has to offer, you can easily start to customize your own herbal salve recipes. A great way to start doing this is to simply swap out the carrier oils called for in a recipe with either another carrier oil or your own herbal infused oil.

Or you can also add your own blend of essential oils. This knowledge can not only help you avoid a potential allergic reaction, but it can ensure you’re getting the right combination of ingredients for your specific skin issues.

What are the skin care benefits of the best herbal salve recipes?

I previously mentioned that herbal salves are great at tackling bothersome skin issues and maladies. However, you may be unsure if herbal salves are suited for your particular concern. Following are some of popular concerns that herbal salves are most commonly used to address.

  • Rashes and fungal infections like ringworm or even parasitic infections like scabies or flea dermatitis.
  • Natural pain relief due to bruising, sore muscles and even arthritis.
  • To treat poison oak, poison ivy and poison sumac.
  • Sunburns and minor burns.
  • Eczema, psoriasis or even hives.
  • Minor wounds, scrapes and cuts.
  • Blisters and boils as well as abscesses and skin ulcers.
  • Dry or cracked skin as well windburned skin.
  • Insect bites and stings.
  • Inflamed bunions or bedsores.

How can I learn more about natural ingredients used in the best herbal salve recipes?

Mountain Rose Herbs is a wonderful source of knowledge for learning about a vast array of organic herbs, carrier oils and essential oils. In addition to information on the natural products they offer, you can also learn more about creating your own herbal salves on the Mountain Rose Herbs blog.

I also highly recommend the book by renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar titled, Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide: 33 Healing Herbs to Know, Grow, and Use.

The books Alchemy of Herbs, The Herbal Apothecary, and Essential Oils Natural Remedies: The Complete A-Z Reference of Essential Oils for Health and Healing are also great places to start your introductory journey.

About my all purpose salve recipe.

Whether you want to test the waters by making a simple salve or want to learn how to create your own custom salve recipes, my all purpose salve recipe is a great springing board for developing your own herbal salve recipes.

Why I love this easy customizable all purpose salve recipe.

  • It’s non-greasy. Formulated using fractionated coconut oil in lieu of other common carrier oils such as olive, this all purpose salve is less greasy than other herbal salve recipes you commonly come across.
  • It’s moisturizing and nourishing. Rather than combing simply beeswax and a carrier oil to create this salve, I also used a combination of cocoa butter and shea butter to moisturize skin and promote skin health.
  • It protects skin. As beeswax is a wax, it forms a protective barrier when applied to skin as part of a homemade or herbal salve. This protective barrier not only locks in moisture, but it also helps to keep out environmental assaults like wind and dry air.

Crafted from plant based ingredients that include a combination carrier or herbal infused oils and beeswax that promote skin health, this collection of the best herbal salve recipes are suited for almost every ailment. Plus learn how to customize a simple all purpose salve recipe for your skin specific needs.

  • It’s naturally antibacterial and antifungal. Often when we have skin issues there’s more to the story than just dry or irritated skin. Because coconut oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, this all purpose salve recipe can help tackle problems we aren’t entirely aware of.
  • It’s perfect for sensitive skin. While customizable, this all purpose salve recipe is unscented and contains just four simple ingredients to nourish and protect skin. Even without the addition of an infused carrier oil or even essential oils, this salve still works wonders for most skin types as is. (Extra sensitive skin users can go even simpler with this all purpose salve recipe and simply combine 3 parts carrier oil of choice with 1 part beeswax. As beeswax is anti-allergenic, just about everyone can enjoy the benefits of this natural ingredient combined with just one simple carrier oil.)
  • It soothes and calms itching. Because this all purpose salve recipe contains beeswax, it does a bang up job of soothing itching – especially when it’s associated with dry skin.

Aside of adding essential oils to this all purpose salve recipe based on your own skin care needs, you can also substitute the fractionated coconut oil with another carrier oil of your choice.

Sea Buckthorn Oil is one of my favorite carrier oils. Not only is sea buckthorn oil rich in nutrients that skin craves, this gentle carrier oil is also a great fit for sensitive skin. Not only does it nourish, soothe and protect skin but it also helps to promote skin health.

When used in an herbal salve recipe, sea buckthorn oil helps to speed healing and damage to skin cells. It also calms inflammation caused by common skin conditions such as sunburns and even psoriasis. Additionally, the high vitamin E content makes sea buckthorn a great choice for anti-aging products and salves.

You’ll also find that sea buckthorn oil is a great choice for fading acne scars and blemishes. This is one of the reasons it’s a must have ingredient in this best scar and stretch mark treatment from my fellow blogger, Cari Dunn.

To learn more about the benefits of other carrier oils you may wish to use in your own all purpose salve recipes, be sure to check out the book, Carrier Oils: A beginner’s guide to using over 40 carrier oils in bath and body recipes, by Cari Dunn in addition to some of the other great resources I mentioned above.

Customizable All Purpose Salve Recipe

Ingredients:

1 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. shea butter
1 oz. cosmetic beeswax
.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil

Directions:

Step #1:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the beeswax, cocoa butter and shea butter.

Step #2:

Combine these ingredients in a double boiler and heat until melted. Then remove from heat.

Step #3:

Next weigh out the fractionated coconut oil and stir into the melted beeswax and butters.

Step #4:

If desired, customize your salve by adding essential oils. Typically it’s safe to add up to 12 drops of an essential oil per ounce of your recipe. However, some essential oils should be used in smaller quantities.

To be safe always check to see what the skin safe recommended usage for your essential oil of choice is. And be sure to research your essential oils beforehand as not all of them are safe for use by pregnant women or children.

Crafted from plant based ingredients that include a combination carrier or herbal infused oils and beeswax that promote skin health, this collection of the best herbal salve recipes are suited for almost every ailment. Plus learn how to customize a simple all purpose salve recipe for your skin specific needs.

Additionally, as there are what are essentially fake essential oils on the market falsely claiming to be 100% pure therapeutic essential oils, I recommend purchasing essential oils from either Mountain Rose Herbs or Spark Naturals. Both of these companies have been independently tested by industry watch groups and have been found to only ever sell  the real deal.

You can also purchase fractionated coconut oil from Spark Naturals in addition to their own base foundation salve. Similar to my all purpose salve recipe, this unscented salve base is designed to be easily customized by adding your own blend of essential oils.

To customize this all purpose salve recipe one step further, infuse herbs in the fractionated coconut oil (or another carrier oil) to create an herbal oil infusion. Then simply use the herbal infused oil in place of the fractionated coconut oil in this or any of the best herbal salve recipes that can be found below.
